Two weeks ago, The Chicklet was out of school six days for Spring Break. Usually during this time, we stay close to home, trekking around town to museums and play dates to keep busy. This year since we’ve been hit by the travel bug, I wanted to do a little traveling not too far away from home. The Chicklet has been wanting to visit the Great Wolf Lodge ever since she saw the information about it that I received during the Family Travel Conference last November, so I contacted them to see if we would be able to review their property and location; and to my surprise, they said yes!
We packed up our bags and traveled to Kansas City, Kansas which is the closest Great Wolf Lodge location to us here in St. Louis. My mother-in-law also joined us for our road trip, and despite the snow, we made it in a little over three hours.
If you don’t know, Great Wolf Lodge is a destination for kids of all ages. Each location has lodging, an indoor waterpark, restaurants, shops and stores, Scoooops Kid Spa, and more. Everything a kid would want to do, Great Wolf Lodge has it. It’s a fabulous place for the entire family to spend time bonding and having fun, and I can’t believe we hadn’t visited a Great Wolf Lodge sooner.
The lodging and accommodations were fabulous. We stayed in a suite that had two bedrooms, living room area, refrigerator, microwave, and impressive bathroom. We also had a patio area that would be perfect for warmer temperatures; unfortunately since it was snowing during our visit, we weren’t able to enjoy it.
What sets Great Wolf Lodge apart from the rest is their indoor waterpark! My daughter said this was her favorite part of her trip. At the Kansas City location, there were several waterslides, including Fort Mackenzie, Howling Wolf, The Triple Twist, Totem Towers, and Crooked Creek. No matter the age of the child, there’s a water area in the waterpark for them, and there are lifeguards on duty and life jackets and floaties available as well. The Chicklet didn’t want to leave the water, and it was fun seeing her enjoy swimming indoors while it cold and snowing outside.
We also enjoyed the Northern Lights Arcade, MagiQuest, and the Creation Station where The Chicklet created her own stuffed animal. She chose to make Sammy, one of the Great Wolf Lodge characters.
And no visit to Great Wolf Lodge is complete without a visit to the Scoooops Kid Spa where my daughter got a manicure and a pedicure and was pampered like a princess.
All in all, our visit to Great Wolf Lodge Kansas City was a trip we will never forget. I can’t say who had more fun—me or The Chicklet! For more information on Great Wolf Lodge, click HERE. You can schedule and reserve your trip to Great Wolf Lodge on their website.
